SECAUCUS, NJ, March 21, 2019 – IPS, a leading provider of digital technologies that transform business applications, today announced that it has sponsored the planting of trees in developing communities worldwide through a donation to the non-profit organization, Trees for the Future.
IPS, a Global Cooling Business partner with Trees for the Future, has pledged to plant enough trees each year to offset its annual carbon dioxide emissions.
“IPS is pleased to continue its support of Trees for the Future. There are many ways that trees are beneficial to both people and the environment. For instance, a single tree sequesters an average of 34.6 pounds of carbon annually,” said IPS President and CEO Greg Bartels. “Any business can do its part to help the environment by eliminating paper-based processes with digital technologies.”
Trees for the Future has been helping underserved communities plant trees since 1989. Through seed distribution, agroforestry training and country programs, Trees for the Future has empowered rural groups to restore tree cover to their lands. Planting trees protects the environment and helps preserve traditional livelihoods and culture for generations.
